    I installed Nova Launcher and only see the setting to make it only Fully transparent. Is there a launcher that has setting for transparency of the notif bar?

    And it's because i commonly use white/light background and it's very difficult to see the time and battery percentage.

    well, to get transparent notfications bar, you need to use either touchwiz w/ samsung's own wallpapers, or root your phone....

    i'm not aware of any other way

    You could always just hide the bar completely it'll still pop up when you swipe down from the top of the screen. That's what I'm doing, then I just add widgets to the screen with whatever items in the bar i would still like to see.
    I really like the nova launcher app, I also like Apex a little more. I also like Lightning and Buzz Launchers too. Download a Home Switcher and you try them all out at the same time.

    I have that option on my Nova. I have the Prime version, though, don't know if that makes any difference.

    Nova Launcher allowed me to make the notification bar transparent.

    I think its the ROM that makes the notification bar transparent. the launcher can only make the app drawer transparent.

    It's most definitely an option in Nova Prime. I have it going on my S4. And I'm not rooted.

    Here's a screen shot of it. It's under "Look and Feel" in your Nova settings. Works perfectly.

    I don't remember that option there in the free version but the hide was there because I used that. I'm on prime also so not sure how to check. Also I'm not seeing it in Apex as an option either, can anyone who uses Apex confirm if its in there or not, I'm only seeing the option to hide.

    I have Apex and, yeah, I'm only seeing the setting to "hide" the notification bar as well.

    oh. wow. I'm using nova prime & that option isn't there.. must be for Samsung phones only. or maybe because I'm on a custom 10.1 rom.

    I think it's ROM dependent. I was running TW on my S4 and it was there, then rooted and now running CM 10.2 with Nova prime and it's not.

    The OP wants a way to set a custom value for the transparency. They are aware that can either be made completely opaque or completely transparent. They would like an inbetween.
